I took in a 6 year old Cannon Powershot 5a to the show, not knowing if it would be confiscated or not. I was pleasantly surpised at the pictures an old $100 camera could take.

I've used a Samsung WB850F for taking pics at the 2013 shows. Here are several of my CA tour pics:

I've also used a Lumix TZ40 for shooting some videoclips. That Samsung WB850F camera is really crap when it comes to sound recording :banghead:

I've used my iPhone, but unless you're front row, then you're not gonna get any good shots!

Me and my dad flew to Canada to catch Rush live, and spent the whole day walking around and then went to the concert. I had brought my DSLR, and tried to get through the security guards but they all told me i cannot have that whatsoever. So i disassembled it and threw half in the very bottom of my camera bag, and the other half in a shopping bag and handed that to my dad. And we got in! I got some really good shots with that heheheh, but i'd never try it again! (especially in america...)

But if you're looking for a point and shoot, then I'd recommend either the Cannon G9 or the Nikon p7700. Super great little point and shoots!

Here's some shots from the iPhone front row Posted Image
